A workplace injury can be incredibly scary. The details of an incident may bring to light dangers that a Portland worker can face in their line of employment, and the shock of coming close to possible death can cause the victim to reflect on their life. In the wake of the physical and emotional trauma that a victim of a workplace accident can experience, that victim may struggle to take the necessary steps to ensure that they and their family is provided for.
A worker who suffers harm on the job may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. Workers’ compensation is financial support that a worker may be able to secure in exchange for releasing their employer from liability. Filing a workers’ compensation claim requires a victim of a workplace accident to meet many requirements, and making mistakes along the way can delay their payment of benefits or serve as justifications for denying them.
The attorneys of Schoenfeld & Schoenfeld hope that the readers of this blog never suffer a tragic and damaging accident while doing their jobs. They know, however, that dangers exist in all fields of work and that harm suffered on the job can cause problems in other aspects of victims’ lives.
